editor Is a brother of Judge Poland, mid,
consequently, good authority on tho sub

take it, to use the requisite funds to meet

does it differ trom tho claim for an inter

the one applies to the other, yet publishers
of the United States and of Europe, with
honorable exceptions, have pirated upon
one another, and robbed authors, for years
without punishment on the one hide or re
dress on the other. If authors and inven
tors are entitled to an exclusive property
In the works of their brains or hands at
home, they certainly are abroad. Legaliz

footing, morally, as unauthorized acts of
the same kind. Oh that justice! would pie

Then .tho salary business Is in the way, and
now, according to the Now York Evening
I'ott " ho is not altogether satisfied with
tho position taken by the administration of
non-interference, and thinks there ought
to bo an outspoken declaration by the
President in his favor, which would turn
the scale and make his success certain.
Again, he does not receive the support from
the Federal office-holders in Massachusetts
that ho expected, and wants tho support
of the administration In order to Influence
them ; but this ho Is not likely to get, for
various reasons, the main one being that
few members of the cabinet have any faith
in his political Integrity."
It seems a little strange, after the con
tests we have had, in tho recent post,
about the equality of all men before the
law, that a deliberate attempt should bo
made, in New York city, to create a dis
tinction between condemned murderers, on
account of former "social position." Sher
iff IJrcunnn, whatever sins ho may have
committed in tho past, failed to see how a
murderer in broadcloth was any better
than one in rags. Frank Walworth, not
withstanding the Interposition of "Influen
tial friends," was treated tho same as any
other criminal; ho was presumed innocent
until proved guilty, and when proved guil
ty was subjected to the pains and penalties,
provided by law for guilty men. Ills ed
ucation, associations and habits make his
crime more reprehensible than if committed
by an ignorant boor ; and Instead of being
shielded from publicity, on account of his
associations, should hare been, as ho was,
held up as a conspicuous warning to others.
HOW CAN AVE SETTLE IT 7
Railroads, from the very nature of their
business, must occupy more or less of pub'
lie attention, aside from nil questions of
public policy or Individual interests con
nectcd therewith. This was illustrated in
our columns yesterday morning, wherein
were recorded a diabolical attempt to throw
a train from the rails, in New Hampshire ;
a collision in Indiana j locomotive thrown
from tho track, in the same State, the en.
ginecr and fireman meeting their death : i
half milo of track binking into the Missou
ri river, suddenly and without warning
elections of railroad directors, and suits
against railroad companies in California
and clt.ewhere; and the opening of the
New York, Oswego and Midland railroad
lietwecn New "i ork and Oswego. This is,
perhaps, an exceptional record for a single
day j yet not a day pastes, but that public
attention is called to railroads and railroad
mauagemont, by the occurrence of similar
events. So far as the accidents ore con.
cerned, they may, generally, be set down
to carelessness and mismanagement, and
for this there Is and ought to be a speedy
remedy. There is no necessity for an ac.
cident, In nlnety-nmo cases out of every
hundred, and they can only result from a
criminal neglect on tho part of their oftl
cers and ucrrants, for which they arc liable
lioth to civil and criminal prosecution. Tho
cause of this negligence, we shall presently
aeo, but we desire, in the first place, to call
attention to other facts, also, appearing in
our Thursday a telegrams. ,
The wonder Is, when we come to con
shier the vaatness of tho Interests Involved
that they have not, heretofore, commanded
more of public attention, rather than that
they are now brought so prominently In
view, and that they are destined to attract
hereafter, so much of the time and thoughts
of the American people. We talk of tho
magnitude of our national debt, tho bur.
dens to which wo have been, and will con'
tlnue to lie, subjected In order to pay it
scores of years lielng consumed before It will
be finally extinguished. Borne well mean.
lug men, even, went so far as to advocate
Us repudiation, on account of Its enormous
aggregate, urging that it could not bo paid
without bankruptcy.. Such counsels, how'
ever, did not, and could not, prevail j the
advantages reaped by Its expenditure being
fully commensurate therewith. Bearing
In mind the idea that we have always cn'
tertalned, and justly entertained, of the
magnitude of the national debt, the vast-
jiess of tho railroad Interest of tho United
States can 1c taken In, at a glance, by the
mcro statement that they have cost a bil
lion of dollars more than the whole amount
of the national Indebtedness. The Incep
tion of the railroad enterprise, In this coun
try, Is within the memory of the most of
us, and yet all this money has been raised
and expended, during that period, mainly
by Individual effort, without exciting hard
ly a comment. The burden of national
taxation is, necessarily, crcat, because, In
addition to ordinary expenditures, the in
terest upon tho public debt, and ft portion
of tho principal, has to bo constantly pro
vided for. Yet the people the producers,
consumers and travelers annually pay to
these railroad corporations ten million dol
lars more than tho whole receipts of the
United States, mid forty-eight million dol
lars more than the Interest upon tho public
debt. This, bo It remembered, is the state
ment for the past year, and Its magnitude
Is lielng constantly Increased, year by year,
as witness the fact of nearly tblrty-thrcc
thousand miles of road completed In the
lost ten years, and the enterprises just com
pleted, nnd others In the process of com
pletion. It Is this very vaatness that has forced
railroad affairs upon the public attention.
One must be a sorry reader of the sljins of
the times, If he does not sec that the whole
matter must bo considered, whether wo w 111
or no. It Is true, too, that there Is danger
In the air, nt a time when there should be
none. Conceal or disguise it as w c may,
there is more or less of monopoly In the
present railroad system of the X. nltcd
State. All such corporations, however,
are not monopolies and iu our future
dealing with this uuestion. this must con-
autly lie borne in mind. Monopolies must
cease. If they cease, " rlnirs," as thev
lave come to bo known, go down with
leni. How this railroad question Is to
come, and how It Is to be met, it is impossible
now to predict. The interest of the rail
road and the interest of the people are one
and the same, nnd if this fact could bo ap-
predated and understood, upon all tides.
ic danger would pass. It Is but uttering
truism to say that a railroad can not exist
itbout the support of the people, any more
than a speedy transit can be obtained witl
out the use of locomotives and cars. Tho
xuct relation of these corporations to the
state, ns n sovereign, and to tho people, has
never, ns yet, been determined. AVe doubt
hether, practically, they could be operated
as " public highways," and used as we use
highways, or as canals are operated. If
they could be so treated, and a reasonable
profit assured to those who had invested
their means In the conslructloil thereof ; a
reasonable speed of transit secured j delays
in loading, unloading and moving avoided j
and the safety of passengers assured, the
hole difficulty would be solved, the
Interests ot all lie placed on the same
lotlng and monopolies, extortions, and
ings cease. The question of vested rights,
in any such attempted solution, would lead
o extended and nhnost Interminable litii;a
tion, and it would be years upon years be
fore the practicability of the plan could be
A healthy, continued competition might,
If it could be inaugurated, also, remedy nil
existing evils. In taking this view of the
matter, however, the vastness of the inter-
ests already Invested looms ! ! r
nencc. If these interests should combine
to prevent competition, we tremble for the
future of our country. Wo have no fears
but that the action of the courts will be
right ; we wish that we were as certain
that their decisions would be respected,
acquiesced In, and submitted to. Courts
muH decide according to the law and con
stitution. In the judicial determination of
questions, arising out of these compiled
tlons, tho fact stares us in the face, that the
people and legislatures icillinglt conferred
rights, powers, nod, in some instances, ex
clusive privileges upon individuals form
ing them into corporations in order to oh-
tain railroad facilities. In those early days,
it would not have made much difference
what was asked, it would have been grant'
cd with avidity, if so be It could be shown
that it wns necessary for obtaining a rail
road. An instance of this may be found
in tho original charter of the Vermont Cen
tral railroad company, exempting them
from taxation forever. Happily for Ver
mont, however, that clause Is now abro
gated by the passing of the control of the
road from that corporation to the Central
Vermont railroad company. So it may be
found, in somo of the earlier charters, that
aclusice riirhts to carry passenjrers and
freight, lietwecn certain points, were grant.
cd to certain corporations. When the at
tempt has been made to provide for the con
structlon of competing Hues, even In this
State, the application has been met by the
claim of "vested rights, and an outcry
raised against "parallel railroads." It
would, in our judgment, puzzle, wiser men
than those comprising our courts, to dis
cover how a parallel railroad could Inter.
fero with a vested right more than a paral
lei bank, but the claim and cry has pre.
vented competition even iu Vermont.
This question, however, must, sooner or
later, be met and settled. It were better
for the parties Interested, nnd for the honor
of the country, that it should bo considered
and met calmly, rationally and dispassion
ately. There is, indeed, no reason why it
should not bo so met and settled. The
Issue as a distinct Issue cannot be forced
home for some time to come, mid, In that
time, let us prepare for tho Inevitable. Iu
a contest where the lights of tho people aic
ranged upon one side, tho result cannot,
even for a moment, ho doubtful. Tho safe-
ty of tho people has been declared to be
higher than all law, and so It Is, for govern
mrnts are organized to assure that safety,
There ought to bo, as wo have said, no con-
test or question about it. There will be
and can bo none, If reason and common
sense control the Issue. The danger, If
danger thcro should be, will lo the result
of a combination of tho vast railroad Inter
est into a monopoly, for tho purpose of
crushing all attempts at competition, nnd
exacting what they please. Tho excite.
mentnow prevailing In Illinois will yield
to reason, and succumb to equity nnd jus
tice. If these corporations suffer, it will
be from their own madness. Our. interest
In this matter Is chlctly as a national ques
tion. Wo havo no particular fears that the
railroad men of Vermont will attempt to
override or oppress tho people. The man.
agersof Vermont railroads, with nu exeep
tlon or two, are, nnd must tie, with us, of
us and f ran us. Their interests aro our In.
tcrests, and our Interests aro their Interests,
and we trust that it will always remain so.
It certainly will If tho pcoplo nnd press ro.
main constantly on tho watch tower, ready
to proclaim and denounce the first ap.
proach of danger, no matter from where
J or by whom It may bo threatened.

The aeronaut I.a Mountain, who lost his
life while making a balloon ascension at
Ionia, Mich., recently visited New York
for the purpose of inducing monied men to
ratso funds to enable him to attempt tin
nerial trip across the Atlantic. He was
unable to excite much Interest in Ills pro
ject, and left for the West disheartened.
He also negotiated with tho publishers of a
dally newspaper lu that city, who had re
cently secured the services of Prof. Wise
to makeja transatlantic balloon voyage, but
for sonic reason the parties did not make a
bargain. La Mountain resided for a long
time near the city of Troy, in New York.
His wife, who now lives nt Troy, often
attempted to dissuade him from his hazar
dous profession, but In vain.
Upon one occasion La Mountain was ad
vertised to make an ascent from Troy, and
Mrs. La Mountaln.ufler Ineffectual endeav
ors to prevent him, resolved to accompany
him herself, and share the danger to which
ho would be exposed. She made the trip
with him and tho affair was a most sue
cessful one. The balloon landed lu the Ad
Irondacks. Prof. La Mountain, like most
adventurers of his class, was bold and fear
less, but lacked the business tact and
shrewdness to make his experiments sue
cessful in a financial point, of view. He
was very poor, and himself nnd family
were often deprived of the necessities of
life, and suffered many hardships on nc

In reference to n seizure of ready-made

tho following facts have been elicited i
A Springfield merchant, While at Montreal,
purchased of n tailor there a suit of clothes
which nttracted the admiration of his
friends, who ordered similar suits. Before
they were sent, a certain detective, sus
peeling that the revenue was being de
frauded, went to Montreal nnd ordered a
suit also. In due time the clothes were
sent to Springfield, mid the detective was
on hand at tho opening of the bundle,
which contnlucd something beside the
clothing, which was several rolls of silk
for ladies' dresses. The duty on silk is 50
per cent, ml valorem, and clothing the
same. Tho goods were seized, while the
merchant claims he mado no attempt to

The lynching of Delos HelTrcn nt Salem,
Intl., has been followed by great excite
ment among his fi lends, of whom he had n
great number, nnd they have vowed eternal
vengeance against tltose who did the deed.
Tho last hanging that look place In that
vicinity was Iu 1870. That, too, was a
lynching, nnd two men who had not mur
dered, but merely robbed, were the victims
of It j but in Heffrcn's case, though there
wns not the slightest excuse for the mob,
It was easier to account for their lawless
ness. Hcffrcn was about 40 ye.us old,
fine looking and powerfully built, and a
man of considerable talent. In 1800 he
wns deputy secretary of state, under his
uncle, Judge Cyrus L. Dunham, nnd when
the war broke out he became mi olllccr In
the army. His mother, two sisters and a
brother, Col. Horace HelTrcn, are still liv
ing. His eldest sister is a reniaikably beau
tiful and accomplished woman. A younger
irothcr dropped dead, some years ago.
near the spot w here the lynching was done.
Hcffrcn was n man of strong passions, nnd
Dr. Halstead was the second person ho
lad murdered. Several years ago he killed
n man named Johnson, but, for some rea
son not known, the jury who tried him
gave a verdict of ncqnittal. They had no
sooner done so than they went to the pris
oner's box, carried him on their shoulders
to a saloon hard by. anil drank his health
and long life. Eight months after, Hcffrcn
married the widow of the murdered John
son. In the past few years he has kept a
drinking house, nnd his habits have been
very bad. He has been very popular also
among a certain suspicious clasj, and ns
his influence was for violence, many law-
ess deeds were committed for which he
wns directly or indirectly responsible, but
his taking-off was a sad commentary on
Iscendiaihes. There seems to be a con
cert of action to give Portland, Maine, n

The Aiikassas Gnu. Horse-Thief,
Molllo Sherwood is tho name of a girl who
has been running around Arkansas In
trousers, nnd who was recently arrested for
stealing u horse. She Is a pretty blonde and
Is nliout 17, Three years ago her brothers
placed her out nt work at a hotel in Aliens,
vllle, but as tho work wns distasteful to her
she donned boys' clothing nnd, under tho
namo of Bill Henderson, got a situation as
post-boy. She carried tho mall for a year
without her sex lielng suspected, but, being
found out, sho ran off nnd worked on n
form, und afterward In n livery-stable.
Hero tho men and boys doubted her mascu
line pretensions, and, to cscapo their ban
terlngs, sho tearfully protests, she took a
horse and mado olf. Sho didn't mean to
steal, and Intended to return tho horse, but
tho sheriff thinks that tho revolver sho
drew when ho arrested her did not becomo
an Innocent girl who merely borrowed a
horse, for temporary use, A local paper
says sho was a great favorite while ehu was
a i)ost-bov. and it was ahvavs deemed
singular that rich and aristocratic young
men should take so much Interest In a pen
niless boy who carried letters for i living.
Portland, nnd OgdciMuttrir "nil.
A correspondent of the Springfield lie
jntUican, from Portland, Maine, makes the
following statement of the Vermont Interest
of one of her railroads i
The Portland and Ogdeusburg Is a Maine
road, thoueh all Its buildlnc onerntlons are
now going on In New Hampshire and Ver
mont. Its CO miles In Maine were opened
almost two years ago that Is, In August
ion, uuu us in miies in vermoni (or
which 00 are now open) will be completed
this year, or early In 1874. The CO miles
through New Hampshire, from North Con
way to Dal ton, are tho hardest part of tho
line, and will be tho last completed, be
cause they nro In tho very henrt of the
White Mountain region, but ground Is
broken there for 18 miles, six miles are
completed, and six more will bo open be
fore winter leaving, nt the beginning of
1874, not more than GO miles, mid perhaps
less than 40 of the 228 miles between Poit
Iaml mid Lake Clmmplaln, still to bo built.
Portland has more at stake mid has em
barked more public money In this road
than In any other, and Its completion Is of
more consequence to the city than nny rail
road enterprise now going on. It is also,
from its location mid history, one of the
most interesting of these enterprises
quite ns much so ns our Hoosac tunnel,
though It will not cost half so much for its
whole 223 miles as our live miles of tunnel,
when completed will have cost the Stato of
Massachusetts. But what the Hoosac tun
nel is to Massachusetts, tho Portland nnd
Ogdeusburg lino is to Portland, as will ap
pear from the following summary of its
Before the building of the Atlantic nnd
St. Lawrence road, which tins long con
nected Portland with Montreal, the pro
jeet for a railroad throughtho White moun
tain notch was advocated, but wns deemed
Impracticable by most persons. The suc
cessful working of railroads with steep
crossing mountain ranges, had not been
sufficiently demonstrated 20 years ago ; the
Baltimore and Ohio railroad was new, the
crossimr of the Allciihanles was rcir.irdcd
as u hazardous experiment, nnd the Rocky
mountains had not been attempted. More
over. Mr. John A. Poor, the great railroad
satlstlclan of Maine, had a project for a
road to Rutland, south of the mountains,
nnd another for n road to St. John : the
Montreal pcoplo were for coming down
north nnd cast of the mountains, nnd so the
Notch route found little favor. But when
the great Importance of tho western
frcisht business bcitan to be understood
and the position of Ogdeusburg and Lake
Champlaln with reference to tho New
England railroads wns seen, and the great
circuit macie to gel round the While moun
tains annoyed railroad men and kept north
ern Vermont locked up from railroad fa
cillties, tho Portland capitalists turned
their eyes once more to the Notch route,
and got a dinner lor the 1'ortlatul and Oj
densuurg road early in 1807. Two years
later they got n right of way from 'New
Hampshire to extend their road through
the Notch, and began to build the Portland
end of the road. In order to do this, the
city of Portland was persuaded to make a
subscription to the capital stock, and U
now by far the largest stockholder In the
DmoF.n Indians Digging.--Riding
through the foot-bills, near Rocklin, I saw
a curious and unexpected sight. There are
Clill n foil- urntnlnul Ill.rwor Trwllnno In tlila
part of California j nmf what I saw was n
party of these engaged in catching grass
hoppers, which they boil and cat." Thev
dla a number of funnel-shaped holes, wide
at the top, and 18 Inches deep, on a cleared
space, and men, wiui rags aim urusii,
drivo the grnshoppers toward these holes,
formlnsr, for that purpose, a wide circle.
It Is slow work, but thev seem to deliirht
in it ; and their excitement was great as
wry neared the circle ot holes and the in
sects ucgan to nop and tail into the holes.
At last there was a close and raiiid rallv.
and half a dozen bushels of grasshoppers

into prevent the multitudes fiom dispers
ing ; and then began the work of picking
them out by handfuls, crushing them
rougiuy in the hands to keep them quiet,
and crowding them into tho bags in which
they were to be carried to their rnneliprin.
"Sweet all, same pudding," cried an old
woman to me, as i stooil looking on. It is
not n good year for grasshoppers this year ;

A YALUAnr-E Load of Bihcks. An im
portant shipment of silver bars was made
by tho Swansea silver smelting and refin
ing company, Wednesday, from tho bank
ing office of Adam Smith & Son. The
shipment consisted of 149 silver bricks,
which contained 47,342 ounces of pure sil
ver and 5,000 ounces of gold, nnd was val
ued nt $75,000. The metal was the pro
duction of seven days' smelting nt the
works, which are now turning out $10,000
worth of gold and silver every day. A
shipment equaling In vnluo this one is made
each Saturday to tho United States assay

tain extracted. Tho bricks are tent through
in the care of tho American express com
